S08E04 – Dodging Sjamboks Part 2

In this episode – part 2 of 2 – Leon & Brett continue the playlist of artists featured in the excellent article by journalist Derek Davey called “Dodging the sjambok: How musicians got around apartheid’s laws”. The piece is an interesting read, but many may not be familiar with the sound of the artists mentioned. So the TMW team thought it might be a good idea to produce a companion podcast.

This episode features

  • Sankomota
  • Hugh Masekela
  • Ladysmith Black Mambazo
  • Lloyd Ross
  • Roger Lucey
  • Mzwakhe Mbuli
  • FOSATU Choir
  • Dudu Pakwana
  • Miriam Makeba
  • The Kalahari Surfers
